Unfortunately, summer is one of the most stressful times for many of us. The holidays can be a joyful time but they can also be stressful. You may feel pressure to buy gifts or maybe you are worried about money and the rising cost. How can you deal with holiday stress and depression? What does holiday stress have to do with dentistry? Do you ever wake up from a night's sleep with sore teeth and jaws? Has your spouse complained about you grinding your teeth in your sleep? If you answered yes to any of these, you may be suffering from what is medically known as bruxism, or in everyday terms, teeth grinding.
Bruxism, the medical term for teeth grinding, is usually caused by stress and can lead to damaging existing fillings or other restorations. Grinding your teeth can also lead to changes in how even you bite is, and that can lead to larger problems with the Temporomandibular Joint or TMJ. TMJ problems can cause trouble in your day to day life and you may be suffering from symptoms without knowing it.
Headaches, jaw clicking and even snoring or sleep apnea are connected to TMJ. Research shows that sleep disturbance can reduce your ability to fully recover from a busy day or cause daytime tiredness and mood changes. Sleep bruxism is quite common, occurring in around 7-8% of the general population. According to the Bruxism Association, almost 70% of bruxism cases are linked to stress and anxiety and although there have been many treatments proposed over the years to decrease the level of bruxism, one of the best proven treatments for bruxism is Dental Mouth Guard by @Time2SleepUK.
